Richmond Village Cemetery in Richmond, Vermont: #2

Today’s video is the second and final one on the Richmond Village Cemetery in Richmond, Vermont. The sun is setting and I am walking the area that seems to have some of the wealthier citizens. There are larger family plots with some impressively-sized monuments.

I did not walk the farthest area at the end. That section was up another hill and I could see no good/safe foothold. I’m not even sure there would be a good place in the summertime.

I recently walked the Richmond Village Cemetery, which is also known as the Old Village Cemetery. What I can say about that walk is how uneven and unpleasant the ground was. There was snow on the ground, but it wasn’t deep. The snow was somewhere between a dusting and maybe an inch.

The cemetery isn’t very large, likely less than an acre.  I walked all but the farthest area because it was uphill and I couldn’t see a safe place for a good foothold.

There are far too many leaning, broken and fallen headstones. There was even one obelisk-style grave marker, which seemed to be missing its base.

Given just within the last hour I was reading about the history of some of the buildings in Richmond, Vermont, I can better appreciate some of the names I came upon there. Hapgood comes to mind, for instance.

Please join me in my walk of the Richmond Village Cemetery. Let’s look at these gravestones together.
